The world rests just a little bit better now. Thanks to the men and women that serve our country, there has been a victory in this seemingly endless war on terrorism. Regardless of religious or sexual preference and complete disregard for their own safety, our men and women in uniform have risked their lives to achieve a momentous victory. On this Memorial Day, we remember the sacrifice they have made and the families they have left behind. . I sleep in safety at night because of their sacrifice. However, political and social commentary aside, it seems fitting and past time to review Brave Spirits’ At Ease Rum.
Summertime is the perfect time for fruity, refreshing drinks. I enjoy them around a poolside, out with friends, or at home after a nice dinner evening with friends. Two spirits come to mind…tequila and rum.
Brave Spirits At Ease Rum is perfectly suited for for your summertime rum drinks. Highly mixable, it does well lending a hint of flavor that clear rums do to drinks such as the Mojito. Upon tasting, it was pretty hot on the palate, and needs something to cool it down a little. By hot, I’m referring to the alcohol burn associated with drinking highly alcoholic beverages. More time in the barrel cuts back on this somewhat, by lending more flavor (and color) to the rum. As you can see by the graphic to the right, At Ease Rum is perfectly clear. Also, by saying hot…I’m not saying that is a bad thing. There is a certain amount of ‘heat’ to all alcoholic beverages. I just happen to see it more in clear liquors.
Back to summertime and relaxing….if you are going to be making a big picture of Mojitos, Painkillers, or the like…At Ease Rum will put you ‘at ease’. Summertime is all about enjoying yourself with family and friends, vacation and relaxation. It’s time to enjoy your summer and breathe a sigh of relief with Brave Spirits At Ease Rum.
